Destination info

Ghana is in West Africa and renowned for having the warmest, friendliest people. It borders the Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Togo and the Atlantic Ocean. Ghana is considered one of the safest places in Africa, with some of the friendliest people on the continent.

 

Ghanaians are traditionally very welcoming people and they pride themselves on the peaceful state, with very low crime rate.

 

Accra is Ghana’s capital city and estimated to have a population of around two million. Accra is a large, sprawling city that is developing very fast. It is situated on the coast, with a port and several beach hotels where tourists may stay. Like any African Capital it is large, dusty, energetic, dirty, busy, and yet charming and unique!

  • Location: Accra, Ghana

During your time as a netball coach in Ghana, you'll be teaching children from as young as junior school age through to university students on how awesome netball is! Netball's an up and coming sport in the Ghana sport scene, so we are looking for people who are enthuiastic about the sport to come forward and volunteer in Accra. Depending on your confidence and experience you may even get the chance to train with the national squad too!

 

Some of the children who will be on the project wouldn't have had the chance to play netball before, or will have very little experience with the sport. By becoming a volunteer, you'll be giving children access to the game and potentially a new hobby too!

  • Location: Accra

You'll start off your time as a netball coach in junior and secondary schools, which is pretty laid back! The children will all have lots of fun as you dish out your best netballing tips, and as some of them won't have played the game before you'll be able to get really stuck in! Before you know it you'll be able to set up matches and training drills for your little teams, and you'll have the Goal Attack and Shooters scoring in no time!

 

From the schools, you'll then be able to coach or (assist in the coaching) the university netball teams. Some netball teams are well developed and play regular netball matches whereas others are a little less organised and need that bit of extra help. Coaching in the universities will tend to take place in the afternoon, after the students have finished their work.

 

You'll then have the chance to work with the netball leagues in the area- which are often very competitive and great fun! The matches are generally in the late afternoons/evenings but training can be first thing- so be prepared for some early starts!

Over the course of your time on the project, you'll get to play netball with children of different ages and ability- which is great for fantastic if you're interested in learning more about the sport yourself. The children are eager to learn more about netball themselves, so anything you can teach them tip wise (or just in general about the rules) will go along way and help the children develop as sports men and women.

 

You'll also get the chance to develop your own netball skills too, especially whilst you play with the top netball teams in the university leagues. Not only will playing netball in Ghana keep you fit during your time overseas, it will also provide a great cultural exchange between yourself, the other volunteers and your Ghanian team mates!

  • Location: Accra

When you're not playing netball with the children, you'll have the chance to explore Accra and Ghana in your spare time. You'll have approx 2 days off a week to get stuck in to the local culture, so as well as hitting the shops in Accra and getting stuck in to the nightlife in the centre, you could sit back and relax on the beautiful Ghanan beaches. It's a hard life, right?

 

After you've finished your placement with us, you could always extend your trip and see another part of this fantastic country- from lush jungles, long sandy beaches and refreshing waterfalls, to historic forts, bustling markets and natural savannah for safari.
